Guidelines for grant of permission to travel by Airlines other than Air
India in the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Changes.
1. Request for seeking relaxation is required to be submitted in the Proforma
(Annexure-I) duly filled in alongwith the necessary supporting documents.
2. For those seeking relaxation on ground of Non-Availability of Seats (NAS),
Certificate issued by authorized travel agents i.e. M/s Balmer Lawrie & Co.,
Ashok Travel & Tours and IRCTC or by Air India (website i.e.
www..airindia.in) is to be attached. In case of Non-availability of Air India
Flight on the days as per the tour schedule, it should be certified by the
programme division while forwarding the request to IFD for seeking such
relaxation.
3. Where direct flights are not available in Air India between two places, the
Non-availability of seat certificate should be as per the journey to be
performed e.g. for the journey from Dibrugarh to Delhi, the non-availability
of seat certificate should be for Dibrugarh-Kolkata and Kolkata/Delhi route
separately and not for Dibrugarh-Delhi route.
4. Similarly in foreign travel cases, where full or partial grants are received,
journey has to be performed in Air India up to the place up to which Air
India is available and seek relaxation for the remaining sector. On
international routes where Air India has code- share partner, the same must
be utilized. No relaxation is permitted in this case.
5. Those seeking ex-post facto approval on ground of Non-availability of
seat(s) Certificate, must enclose the documentary evidence referred to
above and a copy of the ticket purchased for the Journey by private airline
and boarding pass.
6. As per Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure 0.M No.
19024/1/2009-E.IV dated 13th July, 2009 for sectors which are not
connected directly by any of the airlines, an officer/official must travel by
Air India up to the nearest hub. Relaxation will be granted for the remaining
segment.
7.
Non-availability of Air India flight/seats on a particular day/time _would not
be considered as a valid ground for seeking relaxation, while availing LTC.
8. Availability of lower fare is no criteria for seeking relaxation.
9. Those seeking relaxation on the ground of attending meeting at particular
time, must attach meeting notice and approved tour programme and
proof that Air India does not have flight during such time.
10.For invitees from abroad travelling on Government of India funding, efforts
should be made to book them on Air India and Air India code share flights.
11.Cases involving fixed amount of reimbursement like sea passage fare railfare etc. for officials non-entitled to travel by air, need not be referred to
IFD.
12. Sectors on which General/blanket relaxation has been accorded by Ministry
of Civil Aviation are available at Annexure-II, III& IV. There is no
requirement to seek relaxation for these sectors. However, these sectors
may be revised by the Government of India from time to time. This may
also be kept in view while travelling/seeking the relaxation.
13.Even if relaxation is given, the ticket has to be booked only through the
authorised agent, eg. Balmer & Lawrie, Ashok Travels, IRCTC etc by
shortest route.
14.AII requests for relaxation should be routed through the Programme Division
Head and addressed to Director(IFD) in the IFD for necessary action.

official to claim relaxation as a matter or right.
